Odyssey Desperado Don't Miss The Sunset Album Review

 Odyssey Desperado

By:  Gabe Straight, Music Journalist for Boston Rock Radio
Release Date: 30 March 2018
Label: Lions Pride Music




You would think Odyssey Desperado, the hard rock outfit from Greece, was straight out of California. This band has the west coast rock sound down to a tee: soaring harmonised guitars, reverb-heavy drums, epic vocals, this is what hard rock is all about. Although I was only shown a sampler of the band’s upcoming album, scheduled for release in March 2018, I’m excited to hear what this band has to offer.


Vocalist Manos Fatsis has a growl that reminds me of James Hetfield, but can manage to pull off some sweet melodies as well. In addition to the huge-sounding guitars, the band also puts in a very generous amount of keyboards. Not one song in the sampler was free of a synth lead, and that’s one aspect of the album that has me in a wait-and-see attitude going forward with OD. Bands like Kansas and Yes also had keyboards, but the arrangements were treated like an addition to the song, rather than following the guitars every step of the way. Having keyboards and guitars on your album at the same time can clutter up the sound and make things way too busy. The other thing that tilts my head sideways is the abundance of slower cuts. The band advertises itself as a hard rock band, and while bands in the past are no stranger to a softer cut (“Every Rose Has Its Thorn,” anyone?), but the fact that I was hearing more ballads than driving cuts like the opening track “Rush Against the Wave” makes me curious as to how much of the album is as hard as OD says it is. Given these two worries, I’m not that concerned about them.


This sounds like a band with potential to be a big deal down the road. I’m excited to hear the full release in the Spring, and I hope the album with it’s soarings riffs and vocals leaves me asking my mom why she didn’t name me Odyssey Desperado.lo
